side is particularly liberal. neither side is particularly friendly to the kind of values america wants. that's a food reason for us to be out of it. because we can't back a military that is shooting people in the streets. but the brotherhood is not promoting democratic values either. it is really bad situation. alisyn: so what can the u.s. do? you say we should stay out of it. really? just sit on our hand? is that what we do as we watch 600 people now be killed? >> what we first have to do is recognize we have no leverage the administration talks as if we control events but we obviously don't. otherwise we wouldn't be in the situation. i think it is important for us to step back and make it clear we are not in control. to the extent we can promote and mediate and get a better solution, let's do so but we haven't had much success so far. let's have no illusions about our influence. alisyn: does our $1.5 billion of yearly aid give us any influence? what about senator rand paul was just saying quote that i read that it is time to cut that off? >> well he's right. that is what u.s. law req

-assad. that would bring the rebels to power. i don't think that is in america's interest. on the other side the administration could deliver a fairly weak attack, what our military refers to disparagingly ascertaining spanking, and that looks like direction they're going in if you have to pick at this moment. think that would send a terrible signal, both to the assad regime and other proliferators like iran. that the administration is not really serious about non-proliferation. it would say to assad, yes, we can use chemical weapons, yes, we can. not at no cost but at a minimal cost, an acceptable cost. iran would conclude from that i think they should simply continue with their nuclear weapons program, or if anything accelerate and get nuclear weapons. once they cross the nuclear threshold there won't be any u.s. attack. jon: so that the u.s., in striking at a military, well, dictator who is willing to sacrifice his own civilian citizens is willing to lose some members of his military to pursue a policy that keeps him in power? >> look, the american national interest here is all we need to

"the donald" explaining just how far he is willing to dig into his wallet. >> if you were to run for president, how much would you be will to spend on your campaign? >> if i made a decision i would spend a lot. >> a modern presidential campaign can be half a billion dollars. >> can be or more. no, i would be willing to spend, if i did it i would spend whatever it took. jenna: if, if he did it. claiming a fortune more than $10 billion, trump said voters would see a man who built a company with tremendous net worth. he hasn't been totally forthcoming about how much money is actually in his companies which has been controversial over the last self years but that's what he says his company is worth. we'll take him at his word. >> he has been accused in t

right now, saying america doesn't determine the future of egypt. we want a peaceful, democratic, prosperous country. how do you think those words are being heard on the streets of cairo today? >> they're not being heard very much at all. when the people see more than 500 people dead and international community is bassally sittings on its arms and doing nothing. and giving, in their opinion, tacit approval to the killings that the generals and military is carrying out. they really want actions and the international community doesn't have anything to give them. jenna: let me talk a little bit about the muslim brotherhood leaders you met with. there are a few narratives emerging from the news last couple days. these are innocent protis terse that the government is cracking down on violently and quite frankly in the wrong way. but then you have other news that is suggesting that the protesters are not that innocent. they are armed as well and are firing and stoking, aggression from the military. and it is tough to make sense of what's right. is there a good side and a bad side in eg
and for informant information. virtually every day in courts around america a judge is notified of this, the defendant is notified that there's a defendant or classified information, and that information is examined by the judge in secret, and he takes a look at it to see whether it would work out. so, you know, for fisa and for classified information from informant information, defendants are already notified when there's evidence. but in this case, apparently, they aren't. there was a case in arizona last week where a when the identity of the informant became known, the case was dismissed because he was a known con man. jenna: interesting. so that gets back to the point that your article brings up as well as to whether or not the person in the trial is actually getting a fair one. >> right. i mean, the aclu, some current prosecutors and former judges, you know, they say this violates the constitutional right to examine the pretrial discovery, the evidence that the government may use against you, the information the government has that could be helpful or is relevant could be exculpato

it in their words were to tell america's story to the world. some might say that's propaganda, that has a bad intonation, but some might say that's public diplomacy as well. and you say we need to bring something like that back, that's sole focus is about promoting america and countering the narrative. what was the response to that suggestion? and what do you think that will look like now compared to maybe what it looked like in the 1950s and '60s? >> well, one of the things that several u.s. presidents like ronald reagan did so effectively existence the soviet union during the -- against the soviet union during the cold war was to undermine the ideology of the soviets, undermine marxism, leninism. part of the struggle with al-qaeda and all its allies and affiliates is a war of ideas. so one of the things i suggested to take a look more seriously at how the u.s. is supporting efforts to undermine al-qaeda's ideology. we had a structure in place to do that. we had organizations like radio-free europe, radio liberty which did that across eastern europe behind the iron curtain during the cold wa
lee, and this move marks the first tangible step in network's effort -- america's effort to bring to justice those responsible for the attack which happened last september 11th. ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans were murdered that day. the charges are sealed at this time, but we know several suspects are included, and we're told one of them is the founder of libya's islamist militia,al sharia. right now no one has been arrested. steve centanni's live in washington on this top story. the charges are sealed, but what do we know about them? >> reporter: very little is known at this point. the indictment has been issues, we don't know exactly what the charges are, we also don't know exactly who is being named, though we have some idea. but this is the first criminal indictment in the aftermath of the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, an attack, as you mentioned, that left four americans dead. a u.s. official confirmed the indictment while the justice department, on the record, is only saying that the investigation is ongoing and remains a top priority. n

and turns out not to be the case, it dilutes america's recall moral authority and dilutes americans trust in government. what do you think? >> i think glen makes very good points in his piece. you may know him as inst-pundit. he is a big blogger. the larger point glen is getting at when you have a government that operates as if everything it does is simply self-justifying. that as richard nixon once said, if the president does it, it can't be illegal. barack obama says he can rewrite a congressionally-passed law on a whim or unilaterally without consulting congress because that's what he needs to do to make these changes, he is essentially, basically saying that the government is, is in effect a rogue operator and that whatever the government does is legal and whatever they can get away with is fine. you see that running the course throughout a lot, sometimes scandals, sometimes simply policy moves that this administration makes. there is deep irony here. this is the guy going around for five years, you know, insisting that government is us. and that we shouldn't be afraid of the governme
